Unpopular opinion time:1 I do not believe trans people should be “obligated” to “disclose” that fact to romantic and/or sexual partners, particularly not in the early stages of a relationship, and I believe any expectation otherwise is transphobic.2

  1. TERFs don’t @ me. []
  2. And, as a corollary, that means when trans people do disclose, it’s as a mechanism to try and protect themselves from transphobic violence. Meaning the onus isn’t on them. It’s on cis people to clean up our shitty reactions. []
